    I agree with the other members on this one -- it's a pretty ugly fake...

    This really depends on your definition of the word "cheap." The sad fact of the matter is that SS items are more expensive than standard NSDAP items simply because they are attributed to the SS. Many of us don't have the funds to purchase an authentic SS tunic or visor cap... However, there are still a number of authentic SS items that are relatively plentiful and can still be had for a fairly low price. You could look for an SS sports shirt patch, for instance. These are fairly large, relatively inexpensive, and have the iconic SS runes on them. Another option is the SS edelweiss patch -- these are plentiful, and dealers often sell them in great condition for around $100. If you're interested in runic collar tabs, look for the Dachau "BEVO" style. I see them all the time, and they are pretty easy to authenticate, and fairly cheap, as SS items go. You can also check out the various volunteer sleeve shields, which are interesting and often sold for fairly low prices. All of these suggested items are well-known to collectors, and if you create a post on the forum with regard to a potential purchase, I'm sure that the members will be happy to give you their opinions before you buy it. The key is to do your research beforehand -- you will gain a better appreciation for the quality and history of authentic pieces, improve your recognition of these items, and become a better collector in the process. Good luck!

    The juxtaposition of "cheap," "genuine" and "SS" poses a real problem for the beginner.

    Quite true, FB.

    I would also add that fakes of SS items are plentiful regardless of the price point. Practically any SS item has its associated fakes, including dog tags. The only way to be sure of an item's authenticity is to do the research and learn enough about the item to recognize the characteristics of an original (and ask for second opinions, of course).
